In view of the Government of Sri Lanka revoking the telecom levy on data usage from 1 September, Etisalat will provide its post-paid and pre-paid subscribers with a total of 20% bonus usage on data.
At a recent press conference Minister of Finance Mangala Samaraweera announced that the 10% Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) levy imposed on internet services will be removed effective from 1 September.
Following the Minister’s statement, all licensed telecommunications operators announced that all mobile and fixed line subscribers will be granted a 10% bonus usage on internet packages/cards to mark the removal of Telecommunication Levy by the Government.
The removal of the Telecommunication Levy on internet by the Government is a progressive move towards reducing the digital connectivity gap in Sri Lanka. In view of the Government’s decision, Etisalat Lanka will match the offer with a further 10% bonus usage on data, facilitating Etisalat’s data users a 20% bonus data usage in total.
